Embraer to double number of aircraft in the Middle East in four years

6-Nov-2009 11:14 AM

Embraer stated it could double the number of aircraft in the Middle East and is “actively chasing” six new customers in the region, including Oman Air (Aviation Week, 05-Nov-2009). The manufacturer could announce a new order from a carrier in the region by the end of Nov-2009. Embraer will decide in 1H2010 whether to establish a spare parts depot in the region to serve the four Middle East carriers - Royal Jordanian, Egyptair, Saudi Arabian Airlines and Nasair - that operate Embraer aircraft.
